2013 Uni Ulm & TUM Workshop on Coding Theory

On February 21, 2013, Professor Martin Bossert and several of his scientific staff from Ulm University visited the LNT for a workshop on Coding. The workshop focus was primarily algebraic coding, especially Reed-Solomon codes and Gabidulin codes; LDPC codes were also considered.
